Chapter 69 (The Return of Legendary Harmony)
Sol Lune watched as the body of Omega staggered and fell to the ground and splattered into a pure black puddle. Dawn landed beside him and watched as the puddle started to bubble. Dawn looked around and muttered "sumthin ain't right Uncle Sol Lune" "yeah... I can feel it too" Sol Lune nodded. The puddle dissolved infront of the two, and as they raised their heads their eyes grew wide at the sheer number of Omegas that stood before them. There was about a mile of Omega clones that were all grinning wide toothy grins. Sol Lune gripped the handle of his lance hard and looked at Dawn, "we might be a little out numbered here..." "Ah think Ah've got sumething that might even up the odds" Dawn grinned as she held up the necklace with the stone which was whole now. A prismatic light shone from the stone and shot a rainbow into the sky. Dawn yelled out to the cringing Omegas "these ponies have been waitin on some action, Ah hope ya'll are ready for this!". 7 glowing figures shone down from the rainbow and landed in a circle around Dawn and Sol Lune. "Well well well... look what we got here," a purple Unicorn with an armor glowing the color of twilight said as he drew a wand from it's sheath. A yellow pegasus unsheathed his war fan and held it up, "shall we show them how it's done old school?". "Awww yeah, now that's what I'm TALKING ABOUT!" a dark blue pegasus clopped her two front hooves together, one of the hooves had a gauntlet that was glowing a bright blue. A pink earth pony bounced up and down her pig tails bouncing as she did, she spun around and drew a sling shot, "I hope we aren't late for the PARTY!!!". A white unicorn with a platinum colored mane glared at the darkness infront of her, "unexceptable! why look at how disgusting it is! There is no style! There is no beauty!" she yelled as she drew her long bow and readied an arrow. "Howdy...Ah'm gonna be a bit rougher than the last time... Ah hope ya'll are ready" an orange earth pony tilted his cowboy hat towards Dawn and winked as he held out his large cross bow. Dawn felt a pat on her shoulder, "hey you!" came a cheery voice. "Sweet Heart?" Dawn's lips quivered a little as she turned around into a tight hug, "I KNEW YOU COULD DO IT!" Sweet Heart smiled as she held Dawn tightly. "Sweet Heart, you don't know... you don't know... how much Ah've missed you!" Dawn cried out. Sweet Heart smiled and nodded, "we can catch up later, right now... we gotta take care of business". "Ya got that right," Dawn stood out infront of the group. Sol Lune stared wide eyed at the knights that were infront of him, "... are they...?" "They are indeed!" Fang's spirit came from the Heaven's Fang, "this has ... to be a dream, all the Original Knight's of Equestria standing before us!". Dawn yelled at the Omega clones, "today isn't a day the darkness will win! This is the day LIGHT will return to these grounds!" she pointed her cross bow at the large group which had started to move towards them. "Nicely said, madam Dawn," Nova bowed. Johnny grinned and nudged Diamond a little, "she's a part of mah family" he said proudly, "definatly somepony to be proud of" Diamond nodded. Prism looked at Flutter Heart and asked, "wanna see who can get the most?" "aw common Prism... this isn't a competition... but I guess if you really want to... we could" Flutter Heart blushed a little. "PARTTTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Diana Pie yelled out as she took out a catapult filled with streamers, cupcakes, and lit sparklers and launched it at the clones. Dawn watched as the clones got drenched in the frosting and party favors. The clones that had gotten hit glowed for a moment and fizzled away into nothing. Dawn nodded, "ya heard the lady, PARRRRTYY!!!!!!!!" she held a hoof up as the Knights charged in towards the darkness.
Lady Dusk cheered, "Dawn's done it!" "Done what?" Celestia asked as she trotted up next to Lady Dusk, "all of our friends have returned" Lady Dusk smiled with small tears in her eyes.
----Canterlot Castle Horizon's Throne room---
Horizon slammed a hoof against the arm of his throne in a rage, "so... they are back are they? Well then it's time I started erasing the present!" he glared at the statue of Tiger Dusk and shot a wave of oily black dark shadows towards it.
Tiger's eyes grew wide in pain as he fell to the ground, "hrkk!" he gritted his teeth as he felt something lashing at his entire body. Apple Jack gasped and yelled "TIGER! What's wrong!!?" Tiger looked up at her as his spirit shuddered a moment and disappeared. Apple Jack's eyes grew wide in horror, "TIGER!!!". Lady Dusk turned her head in surprise to Apple Jack's sudden scream, "he's gone! Sumthin's happened to him!" Apple Jack, "we gotta go and free him and mah friends from Canterlot NOW!". "Calm down Apple Jack" Lady Dusk said as she put a hoof on her shoulder. Apple Jack quickly shrugged it off and asked, "where's the exit to this place!? Ah'm goin to Canterlo..." she paused as she felt a sudden fatigue hit her, the last thing she saw was Noituac standing in front of her. Noit sighed as she caught Apple Jack from falling, "sorry AJ, can't have you going to Canterlot like that..." "Cat's eye hypnotism... good idea" Lady Dusk looked at Noit who nodded, and added "but that still raises the concern of what has happened to Tiger Dusk as well as Apple Jack's friends".
Nova extended out a hoof holding out his wand, and he pointed it at the creatures of darkness standing infront of him. A long purple saber materialized around it, "I have indeed been waiting for a chance to get a second round with the darkness! And this time... I've come prepared!" a bright flash of green surrounded the saber's blade. It looked like a neon green flame had surrounded his sword. He put his knight's helmet on and shut the visor, "you will witness why I was second in command to the Knight's of Equestria!" he yelled as he charged at the Omegas. He quickly spun around and sliced through everything that was infront of him in one quick swipe. From the swipe there were the green flames that spread across towards the Omegas in the rows further back. Nova positioned his sword infront of him, "NOVA STYLE: TRUE NOVA STRIKE!" his body lifted off the ground and he charged through the enemies. His body was surrounded by a glowing golden light as he demolished the darkness in his path.
Prism looked and flew in a straight line following the trail of golden light, "time to rock!" she quickly turned to the left with her glowing blue gauntlet out infront of her. She rushed a group of Omegas and gave them a grand strike that sent them flying into the air dissolving as they went. She quickly stamped her hooves against the ground and shot up into the air flapping her wings, she turned her body upside down so she was facing the ground again and aimed her gauntlet towards the gathering darkness underneith her. She rocketed downwards, "PRISM STYLE: SPECTER CASCADE!" she roared as she pounded the ground which caused a bright light to eminate from her gauntlet. A large crater formed underneith the force of the attack and there was a powerful rainbow explosion that accompanied it.
Flutter Heart swung his war fan against the side of a Omega clone's head and sent it flying into a group of other clones. He then flew up into the sky and started to spin around in a circle. A large whirl wind started to form around Flutter Heart. Glowing white butterflies started to form inside the whirl wind, "FLUTTER STYLE: BUTTERFLY HURRICANE!" he swung his fan hard and sent the whirlwind towards the group of clones sending them flying and dissolving. He swooped down towards another group of Omega clones and swung the war fan once more sending a powerful gust of wind into them.
Diana Pie jumped up from behind Flutter Heart and landed in the gust of wind and flew into the group of clones with two large cream pies in her hooves. She tossed them at the darkness below her splattering them with glowing cream and pie crust. She then landed and took out a sling shot and loaded a cupcake and shot it at a Omega, then another, and another. Her hooves became a blur as the cupcakes flew out around in a circle. She then grabbed her other sling shot and bucked it towards a clone that was about to attack her from behind "PIE STYLE: ULTIMATE PARTY TRICKSTER!". The sling shot bounced off the clone and returned to Diana as she grabbed the returning sling shot and shot another cupcake from it, and in the process bucked the other sling shot at another clone.
Diamond held her long jeweled bow up. Her eyes glowed green as she aimed an arrow an launched it at a line of Omegas that were approching her. A bright flash sent them flying in all directions, bursting into cinders in the process. She spun around to the left and sent another arrow flying in the direction that Nova was fighting, burning the Omegas that were approching Nova from behind. She did the same for all of her friends. Diamond then used her magic and levitated 10 arrows from her quiver. She jumped into the air "DIAMOND STYLE: WALTZ OF ARROWS!" she yelled as she let all the arrows fly from her bow down at the darkness below her. She landed and clopped a hoof against Johnny's.
Johnny aimed his large cross bow and shot a bolt towards a broken building's wall. The bolt bounced off the wall and passed through two Omega's heads. He then tossed a bit into the air and shot another bolt which bounced and shattered into many small shards and shot like rain down on the darkness. He then slung the crossbow over his shoulders and ran towards the darkness, his chain whip wrapped around his hoof. He smirked as he pounded the ground infront of a large group of Omegas. The ground cracked as he lifted it up with ease and flipped it over with the darkness crushed underneith. Johnny then looked at the darkness that was surrounding him, and swung his whip around in a circle. "APPLE STYLE: ORCHARD'S PRIDE!" Johnny roared as he sent the chain of the whip out with the force from the swing. The chain traveled in a straight line through the Omegas and flashed a brilliant orange causing all of them to disappear in the process. The chain fell to the ground and flew up once more as Johnny tensed his muscles and with much strength sent more Omegas flying. He then started to continously whip any Omegas infront of him as he trotted forward.
Apple Jack stirred as she started to wake up. She was in a hammock tied to two trees. She groaned a little and opened her eyes, "what in the hay happened to me?" she asked herself and looked around. No pony in sight, 'they must all be planning on what to do' she thought to herself as she got out of the hammock. Then she remembered "Tiger!" she looked around for the exit of the Haven and then she bumped a hoof against the side of her head and remembered how she had gotten into the Haven in the first place. She quietly snuck over to the storage and retrieved her saddle pack with 2 lanterns. Apple Jack adjusted her hat and muttered "if no pony's gonna do anything, Ah'm gonna take it into my own hooves". She started to do the motions Tiger had taught her back when she and the ponies from Zodiac Village had escaped. With a quick flash, a orange grid appeared underneith Apple Jack, "hang on Tiger, Ah'm commin!"
Violet was sitting at the center of complete darkness, "so... this is how it ends huh?" she whispered. She laughed a little, "I probably deserve it... even though Enzo said it was alright... I treated him like trash, when I did the exact same thing". A black tendril started to wrap itself around Violet's left hind hoof. "Violet!! Wake up!!" Enzo's voice sounded distant but Violet could hear it. She looked into the distance and saw a small light. She started to get up but felt her leg being tugged at. "....Maybe I'm ment to just stay here".
